good morning, everyone, on this tuesday. plenty of questions this morning into what led to that 48-hour reign of terror in new york and new jersey. >> ahmad khan rahami is being held on $5 million bail after a fierce shoot-out in a new jersey neighborhood, and this morning authorities say he is not cooperating with investigators. >> the 28-year-old is recovering from several bullet wounds. police say he opened fire them after they found him sleeping in the doorway of a bar and two officers were also injured in that shootout. investigators say rahami was directly linked to the weekend attacks on the jersey shore and the blast in manhattan that injured 29 people. >> anticipate he's now facing initial charges of attempted murder. abc's maggie rulli is live in new york with the latest. maggie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, kendis and diane. the manhunt started right here
bar in new jersey where it ended in a dramatic scene. crossing two states, the search for the suspected serial bomber ends in gunfire. >> there's a guy shooting a gun. shots fired. >> reporter: unfolding just three hours after police sent a text alert and released an image of the suspect, 28-year-old ahmad khan rahami. the owner of this bar in linden, new jersey, sees a man sleeping in his hallway and calls police. the officer immediately recognizes the suspect. >> within a matter of seconds the suspect fired on him. >> reporter: rahami flees on foot with a gun in hand shooting randomly as other police officers pursue him. >> one with multiple shots. the officer's awake. >> reporter: the officers fire back bringing down rahami who is now recovering in the hospital. >> oh, man. it was wild. >> reporter: the takedown, 48 hours after the first device exploded on this new jersey boardwalk. then this powerful blast rocked a manhattan neighborhood. three hours later a pressure cooker is found just four blocks north and the next night five
new jersey train station. as police try to disarm them, video surveillance and information gathered from that unexploded bomb led police to rahami. we now know rahami is a naturalized american citizen born in afghanistan. and the fbi found more bombs when they searched his apartment. officials also tell abc news that rahami traveled to afghanistan and pakistan telling authorities he had a wife in pakistan. >> if he has made frequent trips to afghanistan, then investigators, in particular the fbi, are going to have to figure out who he visited and what was the real purpose of his trip. >> reporter: authorities tell abc news that rahami is refusing to answer any questions or even give his name. right now they're digging into his life online and into that trip to afghanistan trying to find a motive and to figure out if he really was working alone.
investigators trying to do their best to answer them as quickly as possible. abc's maggie rulli here in new york for us, maggie, thanks. and so far here's what we do know about ahmad khan rahami. after emigrating to the u.s. as a child, he graduated from new jersey's edison high school in 2007. rahami attended junior college for a year then started working at his family's fried chicken restaurant in elizabeth, new jersey. friends say he was more religious after traveling to pakistan and his native afghanistan. authorities say they tracked rahami through fingerprints and the cell phone on the second manhattan device that did not explode. and this morning investigators are still trying to figure out whether just one person was responsible for the new york city bombing. >> again, the suspect in custody is not cooperating with investigators, but former fbi special agent in charge and abc news contributor steve gomez explained other places investigators might find some answers. >> they're going to be digging into a lot of this guy's background.
the family, friends, neighbors and so on. they are not going to leave any stone unturned because the bottom line is, you can't let somebody else be out there whether they were helping him develop the devices that exploded, whether they gave him some financial support or whatever it was, you got to figure out if there was somebody else involved. >> that's former fbi special agent steve gomez. the fbi also released new details about the stabbing spree at a mall in minnesota saying the suspect was likely a lone wolf. that's from investigators looking into saturday's attack in st. cloud which the fbi is calling a potential act of terror. nine people were injured during that rampage. the attacker was shot and kill by an off-duty police officer. police say the somali immigrant had no known terror ties. well, in the wake of the attacks, the presidential candidates are looking to cast themselves as most qualified to lead the war on terror. a new poll giving a snapshot of who americans trust to handle terrorism. hillary clinton came in at 48% and donald trump at 45%. a virtual tie. now, trump repeated his calls for police profiling to stop more attacks.
